Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2092 after 16 days on 15 September 2092 at 20:33.

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1145 of Meeus index or 2098 from Brown series.
Length of current 1145 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1146 length.
Length of current synodic month is 24 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 45 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠246.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠282.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 September 2092 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 21:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 12 September 2092 at 21:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

2 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2092 at 04:01 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.103°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.164° in the next southern standstill on 10 September 2092 at 11:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 1 September 2092 at 22:14 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
